Description

Ho Chi Minh is an old fall line trail that connects Palos Orange Multitrack to the intersections of Three Ravines and One Day. It crosses Pipeline at an intersection known as Four Corners.

Ho Chi Minh north of Pipeline is mainly flat, but has some exposed roots at the entrance near Palos Orange Multitrack. The section south of Pipeline starts flat, but quickly runs downhill from Pipeline through a heavily eroded section with exposed roots and baby head sized rocks. The lower part is relatively flat and ends at a three-way intersection. Heading left will take you down One Day and heading right will be Three Ravines in the predominantly uphill direction.
